    TweetVictorious intruders often justify their actions by playing up their self-defined probity vis-à-vis the supposed wickedness of their victims. White settlers in the 19th Century Southwest were no exception: they held an undisguised contempt for Mexican citizens residing in the region. Their attitude was couched in the language of race and they referred to Mexicans as “niggers” and mongrels. One of the “racial” traits that “tainted” Mexicans was their language. In the aftermath of the 1848 Mexican-American War, the eradication of Spanish became an important goal of whites in…

    By Arturo R. García Well now this is interesting. As Variety reported on Tuesday, the demand for a new Static Shock revival will finally be met, in perhaps the most unexpected of fashions: an online-only live-action series. It’s also encouraging to see the revival of Milestone Entertainment’s signature character is being led by Milestone alumni: Film and comics veteran Reginald Hudlin will be the executive producer, in collaboration with Denys Cowan, who produced the much-missed animated series that Warner Brothers stubbornly left by the wayside years ago. Cover to first Static…

  • Who We Be Examines the War on Multiculuralism

    21 Oct 2014 | 11:30 am
    “Color is not a human or a personal reality, it is a political reality.” – James Baldwin This is not a book review, because Who We Be isn’t really a book. It’s more of a thoughtful examination of how the United States arrived at this point in racial history. Long time friend of the blog Jeff Chang is the author of the American Book award winning Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: A History of the Hip Hop Generation and editor of the anthology Total Chaos: The Art and Aesthetics of Hip Hop. To say we’ve been waiting for Who We Be is an understatement. But…
  • On DC Entertainment, Cyborg, And Going Back To The Afrofuture

    21 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    By Arturo R. García DC Entertainment scored a rare PR victory over archrival Marvel over the weekend when it announced its upcoming slate of films. At first glance, this latest take on the DC movie universe instantly puts Marvel’s to shame when it comes to inclusion. But besides the far-flung timetable involved, it very much remains to be seen whether the company is willing to put in the work to elevate its non-white heroes to a position befitting their upcoming roles on the big screen. Here’s how the schedule looks, courtesy of Slate: Not only does this signal the long-awaited…
  • #GIA14: Racial Conversation as Performance Art

    20 Oct 2014 | 7:00 am
    Originally published at Grantmakers in the Arts The rules of the Long Table. Can a conversation about race be a performance? What does that simple framework shift do to the conversation? The answer: everything. The long table conversation is a fascinating thing to watch unfold. Participants come in and out as they please. There is snacking and scribbling, mostly on topic. Some people were determined watchers, setting up camp on the chairs on the far edge of the perimeter. And others eagerly queued up in the seats closest to the table, waiting for the moment they could tap someone on the…

  • When Hurt People Hurt

    MEN HEAL
    24 Oct 2014 | 1:30 pm
    I had a run in today with someone on Twitter. They seemed to be very angry about ‘white privilege’ but being white myself I found that statement offensive as it made me feel like the problem. People need to remember that although the rulers of our societies tend to be straight white males, which is obviously unreasonable to the extreme, it doesn’t mean that us white males who aren’t rulers are the aggressors, as we too get punished by those in power just as much as people who aren’t male and white. I got a lot of aggression because I won’t tolerate fighters…

    Today’s Issue: “If you have blonde hair, you are automatically prettier than everyone else.” First, let me say that if you find the above statement alarming, you should continue to read on. However, if the above statement seems completely normal to you, then you MUST read on. Yes, the quotation above is a real quote taken from a friend of mine. Allow me to apologize in advance — this post is primarily projected towards women, and men may not take as much from it as us females. Also, instead of keeping a light and happy mood as I had predicted for my second post, I am…

  • Race, Racism + Sperm Banks

    Carol Walther
    22 Oct 2014 | 9:52 pm
    TweetJennifer Cramblett and Amanda Zinkon love their daughter, but have sued the Midwest Sperm Bank that made her conception possible because of the racial realities of their chosen community.   Jennifer Cramblett and her attorney Tim Misny. This case not only demonstrates that two white women can sue and potentially settle for large sums of money over the racial identity of their child, but that whiteness is a commodity that puts a price tag upon a contractual agreement. Two issues are central in this suit. First, the Midwest Sperm Bank and the couple have a contractual agreement for…

  • Democracy & American DREAMers: DACA & Undocumented Latino Youth

    13 Oct 2014 | 6:24 am
    TweetImmigration—particularly undocumented immigration—continues to be an unresolved issue in America; however, it is part of the larger unresolved issue of the political and social inclusion of Latinos (as well as other visible racial and ethnic groups) in the U.S. It is an issue that will increasingly affect us all because of our changing demographics with Latinos at 16.9 percent of the population projected to be 30 percent of the population by 2050 at the latest. This lack of inclusion is underscored in a new book my coauthors, Jessica L. Lavariega Monforti and Melissa R. Michelson and…
  • Whiteness and Global Academia: Sociological Observations

    Joanna Tegnerowicz
    12 Oct 2014 | 7:07 am
    TweetI have recently taken a look at the list of the current board members of the International Sociological Association Research Committee on Labour Movements. I was convinced that the composition of the board would reflect, at least to some extent, the diversity of the global sociological community and the fact that labor movements are a global phenomenon. To my utter surprise, I immediately realized that there was not even one Black African scholar among the sixteen members of the board. And, even more strikingly, the Africa Regional Representative is a white woman from the University of…

  • Cotswold denied AGAIN

    16 Oct 2014 | 7:31 am
    When are they going to give up?The city's Planning Commission on Wednesday night denied a controversial 41-unit condominium development in the woods northwest of Danbury High School. The proposal was voted down 2-1 after neighbors raised concerns that the development would increase traffic congestion and worsen the flooding of Padanaram Brook. The project by Cotswold of Danbury proposed ranch-style condominiums clustered on 20 acres of the oblong 74-acre property. The remaining 54 acres -- much of it wetlands -- was to be given to Danbury as open space. Although the plan to cluster the units…
  • Why do Mark Boughton and the Danbury GOP hate women?

    24 Sep 2014 | 8:08 am
    You have to wonder what was going through the mind of Mark Boughton and his ilk at the Danbury Republican Town Committee as they prepare for their lovefest with one of the most divisive, iditoic members of the Tea Party, the nortorious Allen West. By giving their blessing to the former Congressional clown from Florida, it's safe to assume that Boughton and the party of hatred and deceit are in agreement with West's attitude towards women.
